Some of the large events at the Palace do require us to make changes to the accessible routes, but we always strive to continue to cater for those with access needs during these times.

Where possible we make provisions to ensure the site is accessible for wheelchair, mobility scooter and buggy users. Single-person mobility scooters are available to hire for use in the Gardens only, not inside the Palace. If your own mobility scooter can fit on the lift, it can be used inside. A number of wheelchairs are available to hire (free of charge) for use around the Palace as an alternative. Please ask a member of staff at the entrance for details. 

An alternative entrance to the Formal Gardens is available, please ask a member of staff for directions. Additionally, some of our Park walks cover uneven terrain and suitable footwear should be worn. Unfortunately, the 'Untold Story' experience and Private Apartment tours are not accessible for these groups of visitors as they are accessed via stairs. An alternative to the 'Untold Story' experience can be found in our Indoor Cinema.

Assistance and support dogs are welcome at Blenheim Palace.

Carers for blue badge holders are admitted free. We also have a number of wheelchair and buggy access points and dedicated parking areas for blue badge holders.

Our Education Team makes excellent provision for children with special needs. Teachers are requested to contact the Education Team in advance on 01993 810535.

A touch tour of the Palace is available for the visually impaired. You will be assigned a dedicated guide who will help you to appreciate our collection of priceless artefacts, as well as giving you a flavour of Blenheim Palace's long and diverse history.

There is no extra charge for the touch tour, advance booking is required to ensure a guide is available. To book, please call 01993 810530.
